Bullied: What Every Parent, Teacher, and Kid Needs to Know about Ending the Cycle of Bullying - by Carrie Goldman
The effects of bullying were brought home to Chicago Tribune
blogger Carrie Goldman when her daughter, a first-grader who loved Star Wars
, no longer wanted to take her themed water bottle to school because she'd been told that Star Wars
was "only for boys." The blog she wrote touched off a storm of support, from fellow Star Wars
fans, bloggers, parents, bully-prevention forums, and even celebrities. Here, she delves into the topic, condensing scientific research into a smooth and easy-to-follow narrative and offering specific advice on how to help bullied children -- and bullies. All parents will find useful information, though Bullied
focuses primarily on female victims of bullying.
